2010 528xi pricing
 
I was wondering if anyone in the know with these cars could comment on a potential deal:

2010 528xi
30,630 miles
Tit. Silver / Black Leather
CPO - In Service 7/31/2009
VALUE PACKAGE, VOICE COMMAND, PREMIUM AND NAV
Starting Price $33,999

Where should I be negotiating too?

I would negotiate down to 30-31k if I were you. That's not a bad deal though- I would feel good about knocking off just a grand even.

Pricing
 
These guys are saying their commitment in the car is above $33K after a lease buyout and certification add on...I doubt I am gonna get to $31K.

New deal today:

2010 528xi
CPO
25K miles
Premium, Value and Navigation
Platinum Bronze with Natural Brown Dakota/Black Accents
In-service 11/20/09
$32,900

I test drove it...holy upgrade in luxury and technology from the E39!!...the car is completely mint and actually still smells new......my only question is the natural brown interior....I didnt think I liked it but it seems to work with this car....thoughts on deal and color combo?

The second one seems like a great deal, especially if you can get them down to 32K even. I like the color combination and I see it has the "Cold Weather Pkg", something you will definitely want living up in CT. I paid 32K for my 2008 two years ago and got most of the major options. Do you know what other options the bronze car has?

Seems like a good deal....Being I'm fresh from the buying arena.....Agree that Cold Weather is a must have in CT!

See attachment for current pricing data for 250 mile radius from Hartford

Avg price is 38580 - 0.1458*Mileage. That means an average deal for an average equipped car is about $34,100 given a mileage of 30,630. Average variability on sales prices is about $2,500 for a given mileage.

CPO and options will certainly offset the price on the higher end - more so the CPO. If you can get the average price at that mileage ($34,100) less the standard deviation ($2,500), then given the fact that its CPO and has some options, then that car would be a steal at $31,600.

If this car is being sold at a BMW dealership, then I think the absolute best you will do on that car is $32k flat. Whoever said $30-$31k is dreaming based on the 528xi market data in your area.

$32,900 is pretty decent. If they refuse to go lower on the sales price, then you have a few options. You can ask them to make your first monthly payment - effectively lowering the price to low $32s. If the car needs new tires soon you can also attempt to negotiate that in as a non-cash item OR ask for a check back to cover a portion of the cost of replacing the car with new tires (once again really only an option if the tires are a bit worn).

Just like when selling a house, some things look much better on the books in certain ways even though the net effect in the end is nearly the same for the buyer. For a dealership it looks much better if they sell a car for $32,900 and then make a $700 car payment compared to selling it for $32,200.

Holy analysis
 
Thank you for the detailed analysis. This particular car is a CPO and is from a dealer as will be any car I look at. It is also important to note that BMW is offering your first 3 payments up to $1500 or .9% APR for 48 months on 2009 and 2010 5 series. This obviously sweetens the deal.
I have spoken to a dealer in Westchester County NY who has a black one with natural brown, 18500 miles, value package and navigation. They will go to $33,750. The fact that the car has only 18,500 miles is very attractive to me. I lose all the lighthing upgrades from the premium package but again....the mileage.

Premium pkg is major! I wouldn't worry about the third car as you're only talking a 6500 mile difference here. I would still go with the bronze one.

This is all I would be missing. Leather comes with the value package in 2010.

universal garage door opener, auto-dimming pwr folding exterior mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, front seats w/4-way pwr lumbar, illum inner door handles, illum door storage bins, front footwell lighting, rear entry/exit lighting, additional trunk lighting, LED exterior ground lighting

I cant get past the natural brown interior on the bronze I dont think.
